The Raven offers Initiation, protection and the gift of Prophecy. What is meant by Initiation in practice may be as formal as actually undergoing an Initiation Ceremony, as informal as being Initiated into the Mysteries of a new post or profession.
It marks the Death of one thing, which gives rise to the Birth of another. The power of the Raven can also bring you the very deepest form of Healing, which is achieved through a process known as
"the Resolution of the Opposites"
giving you the possibility of resolving conflicts that have long lain buried in your
or perhaps in your past.
"Walk in Beauty"
Impressions in the sand left by
as I wander
my Mother the Sea
and my Mother the Earth.
Smooth before me the strand
and smooth behind .
Shall anything remain of me?
Have I any worth?
Oceans speaks but with the roar
of patterns woven oft before.
Land is mute,
to Spirit both are monument.
say my Mothers two,
"Thou has not but one duty.
Let Spirit move and speak through you.
Thus always shalt thou walk in Beauty."

Ancient myths tell of a society of
who lived in Spiritual communion
with their Creator
In Harmony with each other and with
Reverence for all things.
As “civilization” grew around them
they found themselves
surrounded by an increasingly violent world.
Greed, force, envy and jealousy
grew and war reigned.
The Peaceful ones chose not to
live in this world of strife.
They understood that many eons
would need to pass before
this infant civilization could mature
past its need for warlike ways.
In answer to their prayers,
the Great Spirit
instructed them to take
Bird forms and leave their beautiful
Mother planet until the time
came when Humankind was
prepared to live in a World of Love.
At that time they would be summoned
to return and assist in
transforming the violent world
into one of Joy, Wonder and
undreamt of Beauty. That long
awaited time has finally arrived.
We sense the Spirit of Change
within us and feel it all around us.
Everywhere on earth is a renewed
sensitivity to Life, to God,
and to our Sacred Planet.
The forces of Light are gathering,
the time of peace on earth is at hand
the Great Spirit
sends the call into the Universe
that the time has come,
the time is now for the
"Return of the Bird Tribes."
